T. Eric Bakutis is an author and game designer living in Maryland. He is happily married and shares his house with a vicious, predatory cat and a sad-faced, cowardly dog.

In his day job, he's a professional videogame designer and has shipped at least one title you've heard of. He's also fascinated with the progress of virtual reality and as the owner of an Oculus Rift DK2, has many thoughts on where it's going (some of which you can find on his blog at tebakutis.wordpress.com).

In his limited spare time, Eric hikes with his lovely wife and cowardly dog, plays any videogames he can get his hands on, and participates in local events like the Baltimore Science Fiction Society Writer's Circle.

His short fiction has been published in a number of small markets and his first fantasy novel, Glyphbinder, was one of eight finalists for the 2014 Compton Crook Award presented at Balticon. Its sequel, Demonkin, was published in December 2015, and the final book in the trilogy, Bloodmender, will be released in March 2017.
